Tig Notaro Felt ‘Huge Relief’ When Louis C.K. Was Ousted For Sexual Harassment

In an appearance Monday on ABC's daytime talker "The View," comedian Tig Notaro said the exit of Louis C.K. from her Amazon show "One Mississippi" was "a huge relief." He had been an executive producer on the series, but left in the wake of allegations of past sexual harassment.

Notaro said she learned of the harassment allegations against C.K. soon after Amazon bought their series. "I found this out right after we sold the show, that this was happening," Notaro said. "I started publicly trying to distance myself from him for almost two years now. Even though I knew firsthand from people, it wasn’t my place to call out names. It’s somebody else’s story. It’s for them to directly speak about, but I knew, for myself, I wanted to make sure," said Notaro.

When asked whether or not she had heard "rumors" about C.K.’s behavior in the past, Notaro said that while she hadn’t been specifically sexually harassed by the comedian, she nonetheless "had gotten firsthand confirmation."
